    The Old Port, Honfleur

    Honfleur in Normandy is one of my favourite watering-holes, and I go there regularly - just a 30-minute car crossing on Le Shuttle tunnel service and a 3-hour drive from Calais. This painting, done almost exclusively with the oil brush on a rough canvas backing, is a sort of "large miniature" and packed with detail. One of the things I love about doing this kind of scene is that, while painting it, I'm transported - temporarily - to the scene and can conjure up the seafood, galettes, crépes, wine, Norman cider, the sounds of the port... Can't wait to get back there!
